State Democrats hold press conference against GOP presidential candidates ahead of Milwaukee debate

WKOW.com, We've Got You Covered.

State Democratic lawmakers voiced their concerns about the Republican candidates ahead of Tuesday's presidential debate in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's mayor joined the Democratic National Committee and others at Milwaukee's City Hall for a press conference Monday.

One assemblyman says the GOP candidates need stronger policies.

“Anti-immigrant rhetoric, you hear them talk a lot about Christianity and their belief in god but you don't see the policies that back up those beliefs,” said State Rep. Mandela Barnes (D-Milwaukee). “What you see is a set of candidates hell-bent on destroying our country.”

Milwaukee Police are allowing protesters at a predesignated area near the debate site at the Milwaukee Theatre.
